Through diagnostic processes of contextualisation, systemic and formal analysis and narrativisation the cultural
artefacts allow insight into our current presumptions and preoccupations, and help to examine the possibilities of
understanding and projecting more resilient futures. The cultural artefacts chosen dwell upon particular objects
(films, poetry, essays) that grapple with some of the environmental, social and economic anxieties of our
contemporary world. They mirror some of the geographies reflected in the other electives that run in tandem.
